See Girl's Home Made From Mud, Straw, Tires on MTV's 'Teen Cribs'
Called the Earthship, the high school sophomore's Ohio home will be featured May 6 on MTV. Filming only took a day and Catlyn, who ironically doesn't have a television in her home, called the experience tiresome, but great.
"I had to repeat myself a lot," she reveals. "That was my first real experience around cameras. I was surprised how easy it went. I thought it would be a lot harder. I found I perform better in front of cameras than I do in front of people."
Catlyn's hoping that her super eco-friendly casa will get across the message to other teens that "material ownership is not something that should define culture." Since she doesn't have a TV, a nervous and excited Catlyn will be watching from a friend's house when the show airs.
"I hope people learn that even though I live in a weird house that's different, I'm just a normal teenager."
